Its been above 40 all week

I have been experimenting with the macro setting on my mothers and my cameras - so just for fun some yarn porn.

Its also been 40.4, 42 and 42 again tomorrow (in celcius) here in perth - very very hot so the knitting has been non - existant, though I did pin out my FBS. Not very well but for a first lace pinning try in a sock yarn im not too worried about it. Or should I be???? opinions are more than welcome.

I have also been thinking about biting the bullet and getting some books from amazon though it is rather expensive to send them here. To make it worth my while I was thinking of getting an Elizabeth Zimmerman book as well as the domiknitrix one. Which EZ book should I get- I was thinking the one with the garter stitch baby cardigan in it though i dont know the title- thats the only pattern I want!!!!!

The purple yarn is a debbie bliss silk or alpaca silk- I am not sure, it was a sp gift from a previous round.

I think the shawl looks great! I have "Knitting without tears" by EZ, and also picked up a copy of "The knitter's almanac" at a used book store. Knitting without tears seems pretty comprehensive.
